You are bidding on a 1972 Ford Gran Torino Sport. This has been a daily driver since I bought it in 2005 it has a 351cc Cleveland motor 2 barrel stock from everything I know. I have never had the motor opened up. The motor and tranny are in good shape no leaks and does not smoke. Things I have done over the years replaced the carburetor, 4 new tires they now have about 20000 miles on them, replaced the ball joints and some of the bushing, recently replaced the back shocks, front shocks replaced about three years ago, we tinted the windows about 6 month ago, master cylinder was replaced 5 months age, starter replaced about a year ago, changed the radio to an FM CD player, added some 6X9 speakers, quarter window seals, front and rear emblems about 5 years ago and a bench seat cover.
Things that need attention she has some rust in the normal spots re-quarter panels, under the doors, trunk lid, under the vinyl top, a few spots on the hood, interior needs to be replaced, passenger front fender has a small dent, paint is starting to fade, power steering has a leak, gas gauge does not work along with the clock and tires are ok for now. If I can think of anything else I'll add it. The mileage posted is what the odometer reads I have NO IDEA of its accuracy.
I bought this car because it could be driven and worked on it wasn't someone else's jigsaw puzzle nor was it a trailer queen. She is affordable and can be enjoyed my son and I have done just that, she is a little better off than we found her.
I am selling this car in as is condition with warranty at all. All sales are final so PLEASE ask all the questions before you bid I will try to get you the info or picture if you need them asap. Bid to win if the price gets close to the reserve I may remove the reserve.

Ford announced its first non-pursuit-rated Police Interceptor ever, based on the Taurus, which employs the smaller 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine in place of similar pursuit-rated Police Interceptors powered by naturally aspirated 3.5-liter and 3.7-liter V6s and the top-spec 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. Officially called the Special Service Police sedan, the car was commissioned at the request of law-enforcement agencies that desire a more fuel-efficient vehicle for detectives, administrators and campus police, who don't necessarily need pursuit-rated vehicles.

The 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine produces 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, but more importantly, it allows the SSP sedan to achieve somewhere in the neighborhood of 22 miles per gallon city and 32 mpg highway, which are the civilian 2.0-liter Taurus' official EPA ratings. Ford estimates that the SSP sedan will get 20 mpg city, 30 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined, with the help of Active Grille Shutters that open to allow more cooling air through to the radiator, or close to optimize aerodynamics and fuel economy. Those numbers compare favorably to the discontinued Crown Victoria-based Interceptor's 14 mpg city and 21 mpg highway and the newer Taurus-based cars equipped with V6s, the most fuel efficient of which gets 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway.
If it was driven 90,000 miles over the course of three years, a 2.0-liter SSP sedan would save law enforcement agencies $5,042.92 versus the Crown Vic, Ford estimates. The EPA is expected to post official fuel-economy numbers for the SSP sedan in December. Until then, read the press release below for more information.
The signs have been very positive for Ford's F-Series line of pickup trucks as of late, and after 24 consecutive months of increasing sales of the best-selling F-150, the automaker has added a third production crew at its Kansas City Assembly Plant that includes 900 new hourly workers to meet demand for the truck. This the first step in Ford's plan to add 2,000 hourly jobs at the plant to help meet demand for its trucks and to begin production of the new Transit van, the automaker says.

Despite some tough new competition, sales of the F-Series are the strongest they've been since 2006, according to Ford. The automaker sold 60,449 F-Series in July, the best sales figure for the mid-summer month since 2006, which also represents a 23 percent increase compared to July 2012. From January to July 2013, sales were up 22 percent compared to the same period last year.
Ford has committed to creating 12,000 hourly jobs by 2015, and with the 900 new employees added to the assembly plant in Missouri, the company says it has completed 75 percent of its goal. Ford has also invested $1.1 billion to retool and expand the Kansas City Assembly Plant to ready it for Transit production. Take a look at the press release below for more job and F-Series sales information.
Proving that there is still something to be learned on television these days, National Geographic Channel recently introduced a new series called Duck Quacks Don't Echo. On the first episode of this science/comedy show, host Michael Ian Black proposes the idea that a truck can be supported with a ceramic coffee mug under each wheel - yes, he says that the entire weight of a truck can be balanced on just four coffee mugs.
Looking to find out whether this is fact or myth, the show uses a regular cab Ford F-150, weighing in at 4,800 pounds, and four average coffee mugs. Lowered onto the mugs, the idea is quickly put to the test. Can the cups hold up under 4,800 pounds? If so, what, exactly, would it take to break them? Scroll down below to find out.
